I have recently moved back into this area (I grew up here and attened the old Erdenheim) and I have to say, that while Im sure the distrcit itself as a whole is suffucent in its teachings of the children, the staff of this school, mainly the principle, is seriously lacking on ANY people skills. There is no warmth, no personality, no genuine care for the parents or their concerns. It really feels like its just a job to them. Do what you have to do and go home. An example? What kind of priniciple makes a new student, who is there to tour the school and MEET you, who is nervous at seeing such a LARGE school, sit all alone in the office for 45 min while she talks to the parents. Nothing more than a hello and goodbye to the child. No interest in getting to know him, no inerest in making him feel at ease and welcoming him to the school. If this is the face of the school, I am extrememly leary to send my children here. I am looking at other districts, even if I have to pay taxes in two districts, that is how unimpressed I am with this school.
The overall school district is nice. I loved Enfield The principal will greet you as you walk in the door. She always shows a positive attitude. My experience with the Erdenheim principal is another story I have walked through the same door with her and there was no Good Morning. I have also witness her with the staff very Tuff. I think she should probably work in a community that doesn't expect a friendly smile.
